Announcing: "Suave"... by Authentique Paper

The quote says it all..."Life is extraordinarily suave and sweet." Our brand new collection, "Suave" is charming and adventurous with a hint of grunge. This is the story of a boy...and the story of a man!

The basis of our "Suave" collection is classic, both in pattern and color. Shades of blue, green, cream and black present a wide range of age and usability. We promise you, there is something for men of all ages and you will love creating with this range.

12 double sided papers, printed on our signature heavy-weight textured cardstock are named "Authentique-style," based on emotions felt as a boy, man, or when describing the man, whether big or small, in your life. Opposite the pattern side of the paper are distressed solids...this is where the "grunge" comes into play (a little dirt never hurt!)...a faint dot layer of texture creates movement and depth. Finally, pay extra attention to the paper names and you'll better understand the link between the name and design of the paper.

"Dapper" 12x12 Paper- SUA001
Towne store side design & midnight blue distressed solid

"Noble" 12x12 Paper- SUA002
Multi colored plaid - a staple in any man's style / grass green distressed solid

"Dashing" 12x12 Paper- SUA004

"Crisp" 12x12 Paper- SUA017

"Sociable" 12x12 Paper- SUA019

"Treasure" 12x12 Paper- SUA020
Grungy diamonds in black, grey and teal / golden green distressed solid - another fabulous background paper!

"Vigorous" 12x12 Paper- SUA021
Ticking stripe in non-traditional colors - vintage meets modern / black tonal distressed solid

Sometimes you just need a no-brainer "foundation" for the project you have in mind...our "Foundations" are the fail-safe option, "solid" on one side and a very faint pattern on the other.

"Foundation One" 12x12 Paper- SUA007
Antique cream / blue mini, mini dot

"Foundation Two" 12x12 Paper- SUA008
Light teal / Antique cream and light teal graph paper

Set aside a few minutes to read the sentiments on the 12x12 sticker sheet, a lot of time and thought go into the creation of our accessory sheets, this one in particular is totally "suave."

The 8x12 "Elements" sticker sheet will save you time and creative brain cells. Use the "diction" mini word stickers for journaling or to personalize a card for the guy in your life!

"Elements" 12x8 Sticker- SUA011

The next three items could be our favorite...cardstock pre-cut paper accents, printed on BOTH sides...layer on top of one another or if you aren't fond of the image/phrase, turn it over and use the patterned back side as a background accent piece!

"Stamp Blocks" Die Cuts- SUA010

"Titles & Phrases" Die Cuts- SUA012

"Circles & Scallops" Die Cuts- SUA013

Ahhhh...nearing the end..."Suave" is a dapper collection, would you agree?

I am just discovering the scrapbooking and album-making crafts and this would make a good first collection. Thank you!
